Like most lawn ornaments, lawn gnomes have a reputation for being kitschy to the point of outright tackiness, but the NINO Gnome is hoping to bring the goofy sculptures an edge. The cement sculpture is a collaboration between Plato Design and designer Pellegrino Cucciniello, and it playfully teases the classic red and blue gnome of yesteryear by replacing it with a stylish, brutalist sibling.
Plato Design is releasing the NINO Gnome in three colors: light grey, dark grey, and pastel pink. Each color adheres to the same cement cast, which is a jagged, rough take on the classic gnomic stance. Since they're indeed made of cement, the NINO Gnomes can handle serving as actual lawn ornaments, however both Cucciniello and Plato Design recommend the sculpture as an indoor piece.
